DeclaraCAD provides a
Toolpath node for generating simple gcode for 2.5D plotters, cutters, and engravers. To use it set the
wires to generate toolpaths for the
end_point, and output
filename where it should be saved.
Note: Since the
Toolpathnode works with any wire topology custom processing can be performed on the wires before generating the toolpath.
Additional options can be provided to alter the toolpath, for example
reverse=True will generate the reverse the toolpath direction, and
optimize=True (the default) will perform a shortest path optimization of the movements. If the device supports 3d movements the
clearance value sets how far the head will lift between cuts.
